Golden with a hint of haze, lots of small fast rising bubbles, and 4 fingers of yellowish installation foam like head.

Smells of Brett, pee, creme brulee, and 'Crunch' chocolate bar toffee foam.

Tastes of Brett, caramelized sugar, pee, jam, marmelade, and a strange citrus quality which I assume is sudachi. Hints of bitterness which I imagine to be the rind and pith of the fruit, as the taste is similar to some limes', and grapefruits' skin. Little sourness, not really present as I was expecting. The aftertaste is of lemon zest.

Medium, slightly jammy body, with lots of foamy carbonation.

Got on wish beer some time ago, drinking in Chiang Mai, Oct 31st, 2016. Really interesting, but not busting it. Not the sourness I had expected, nor the clarity of Brett I'd hoped for. It mingles with both, and is somewhat interesting, doing a dance but not set on one partner.

Aroma is citrus, fruit and the expected Brett. The flavor is tropical fruit, citrus, Brett, fruit, malts, slightly grainy texture and a mildly sweet/increasingly bitter finish.

650ml bottle poured into tulip 15/11/15

A hazed golden yellow, enough clarity to see plenty of bubbles everywhere, two fingers has amazing retention slowly falling to a thick film leaving nearly continuous lace all the way down the side, amazing looking beer
Edit- second pour looks like juice, there's a ridiculous amount of yeasty sediment in this stuff, looks like milky juice, still has great retention and lace just looks like a completely different beer the second time around

S massive tropical nose, I can't recall trying sudachi before but its like tangerine, sweet orange, pineapple juice, lemon, and mango, some brett but I'm guessing this ones fresh, fairly catty, floral, and gets funkier as it warms

T the tropical flesh turns into citrus peel in the mouth, lots of rind going on its taking over really, still has some faint brett, some pine I didn't smell, a big step back from the smell

M medium bodied, a little foamy, bitter and gritty, I haven't eaten kitty litter since infancy but I could see the aftertaste having some resemblance

O started off great and tapered off fairly quickly, looked amazing, smelled great and just couldn't follow through, not bad in anyway though just a little build up for a let down

If I had only looked at and smelled this one it would've scored very high, not sure what happened here to be honest, had world class potential out of the gate and ended up decent

22oz bottle, part of a few new variations of this Brettanomyces series to arrive locally of late.

This beer pours, like its brethren, with a stupid and ridiculous amount of aggressively foamy ecru head, which initially fills the glass, before revealing a hazy medium golden yellow colour, and some patchy cloud-form lace around the glass as it very slowly recedes.

It smells of funky white cheese, zesty yeast, bready and slightly doughy pale malt, an underripe lime-like fruitiness, and some gritty grassy and wet woodsy hop bitterness. The taste is grainy, lightly crackery pale malt, a mildly funky, sort of musty bacterial presence, standoffish earthy yeast, edgy, and none-too-sweet lemon/lime esters, and more grassy, weedy, and leafy hoppiness.

The carbonation is certainly quite active in its swirling fizzy and frothy natures, the body a decent middleweight, and not particularly smooth, of course, but hardly disagreeable, either. It finishes off-dry, but just so, as the small dose of lingering malt and ethereal fruit sweetness don't seem long for this world.

Overall, the Brett behaves (other than in the overwrought, and persistent effervescence) like it should - a laid-back, non-interfering sour/funky/musty guest, letting the rest of the beer get on with things. I am pleased that the Japanese Sudachi fruit is more than just perceptible, which goes a long way in making me want to actually finish this offering.

This beer is outstanding although I can't really place the Sudachi. I can pick up some sort of citrus, but in a general sort of way. Very easy drinking brett. Appearance is amazing with a mammoth head that slowly settles.
